Harry Macklowe is one parcel closer to building his $1B Midtown office tower
Developer has closed on the purchase of 5 East 51st Street for $44M

Harry Macklowe’s dream of a building one more soaring skyscraper in Midtown picked up a bit of steam this week.

The octogenarian developer on Monday closed on the purchase of a six-story rental building at 5 East 51st Street from Noam Management for $44 million, according to property records. His company Macklowe Properties funded the deal with a roughly $124 million mortgage from Fortress Investment Group.
Quote:
Macklowe, who was married last week following a bitter divorce that split his fortune down the middle, has been stitching together an assemblage for the site for years. He already owns 12 East 52nd Street, for which he paid $32 million, and 4 East 52nd Street.

The assemblage is central to Macklowe’s vision for a tall and skinny mid-block office building between East 51st and East 52nd Streets known as “Tower Fifth.” It would stand about 1,500 feet tall, span 1 million square feet and likely cost upwards of $1 billion. He will need to transfer hundreds of thousands of square feet of development rights from St. Patrick’s Cathedral to build the project, which is likely to cost tens of millions of dollars. To transfer air rights, Macklowe will have to go through the city’s ULURP public review process.

If built, the tower would rise even higher than Macklowe’s luxury condo project at 432 Park Avenue, which stands about 1,400 feet tall. It would face direct competition from new-development office buildings including SL Green Realty’s One Vanderbilt, Related Companies’ Hudson Yards complex, the World Trade Center and Tishman Speyer’s the Spiral.


Sites again...

Macklowe moves closer to building Midtown tower with $44M deal


By Steve Cuozzo
March 11, 2019


Quote:
Harry Macklowe took another step toward building a supertall office tower across from St. Patrick’s Cathedral and between East 51st and 52nd streets. He quietly closed this week on a $44 million purchase of four-story 5 E. 51st St., according to city Finance Department records.

But ecstatically remarried Macklowe still has a long way to go with the multibillion-dollar project. His assemblage isn’t complete yet; air rights purchases must be negotiated; and the 1,551-foot-tall skyscraper would need several, which would face certain contested city approvals, including from the Landmarks Preservation Commission (because it brushes shoulders with several designated landmarks).

Besides securing air rights, what other parcels need to be acquired for this project?

He has 12 and 14 East 52nd and 5 East 51st Street. The other properties are in the process of assemblage.

We'll see what happens as the design is refined more.

I surely hope this happens within the next two years. Building it on-spec would be ideal.

That would be awesome,

Throw some vanity height in there and make it one of the top 5-10 tallest buildings on earth
